What is Nullification & Why Americans Should Embrace It?

Nullification goes hand in hand with our very abused 10th Amendment. According to Tenth Amendment Center, in simplest terms, nullification is exactly what every toddler masters early in life – just saying, “No!

Click here to listen to this short bit from Tenther Radio to learn what nullification is and more about the 4 Nullification priorities for 2014.
  1. NSA Spying
  2. The Right to keep & bear arms
  3. Indefinite detention
  4. Industrial use of Hemp

The Tenth Amendment summed up is ‘States Rights’, but this Amendment to the Constitution is short,sweet and so simple to understand I include it in full:

Amendment X – The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

This means the federal government has jurisdiction only if the Constitution clearly grants such. In this case, there is a very large group of powers belonging to the states, and the federal government is limited to only those powers explicitly listed in the Constitution.

Nullification is the power of the States and The People to basically pull the rug out from under the ‘Federal feet’ by refusing to cooperate with federal officials in enforcing federal acts.  The Anti-Commandeering Doctrine with precedent in at least 4 Supreme Court cases upholds the States right to refuse to do the bidding of the federal government. This is also true on the local level.
For example in the case of the Feds anti-gun laws which violate our right to keep and bear arms, Judge Andrew Napolitano said recently that “state authorities could legally choose not to enforce a federal gun law that goes against state law, but that the feds need the help of state and local authorities to enforce laws. Mass noncompliance will render federal laws “nearly impossible to enforce.” They simply do not have the manpower.
